Upgrading to Unicode
SuperMemo 15 uses Unicode throughout the program. All old collections will now need to be converted to Unicode. As this requires some knowledge of System Locale, this page provides the ABC rules for the upgrade.
When you open an old collection, SuperMemo will automatically beging the upgrade. You will first be asked:
SuperMemo 15 Beta needs to convert old collections to Unicode. Please choose: * I use English. Go ahead with the default conversion * I know what code page or system locale I use in this collection * Please help me * Cancel
If you never use foreign languages, and your Windows uses English locale (e.g. US, UK, etc.), you can choose the first option Go ahead. However, if you ever created your collections using foreign non-Latin symbols (e.g. Russian, Hebrew, Japanese, Arabic, Chinese, etc.), you will need to tell SuperMemo which page you want to use for the conversion. If you choose I know what code page ...", SuperMemo will help you pick teh code page:
Choose a code page for conversion to Unicode: English (old SuperMemos) 1250 — Central and East European Latin 1251 — Cyrillic 1252 — West European Latin 1253 — Greek 1254 — Turkish 1255 — Hebrew 1256 — Arabic 1257 — Baltic 1258 — Vietnamese 874 — Thai 932 — Japanese 936 — Simplified Chinese 949 — Korean 950 — Traditional Chinese Other Cancel
If your code page is not listed here, choose Other, see Microsoft documentation and input the correct code page number.
